Back injury and a virus has put me out of condition but now I am back in the land of the living. I have just fitted the wheels and need to made a couple of mods to suit me. I hoped to be out before xmas but that will not happen and I am away for a week over the New Year so I hope to get her on the water shortly afterwards.

I am useless with a computer and as to video------------------you are way above me on that one but I will try to get a friend to help out and put something together. Oh, what am I letting myself in for here.

Phil

There is another one here


I have to say that the principle looks very similar but the tubes look really cheap and nasty with that awful shine to them that you get from the ' holiday ' inflatables. Makes you wonder if the the hull design has been copied. I have paid my money and bought the Frib because I believe the build quality is there, looking at these other youtubes, I am sure I made the right choice.

I wonder if the difference is how PVC looks as opposed to how Hyperlon looks

On the other hand the this new knockoff does look to have a smaller interior

I am not sure. I know the knockoff weight dry is 165lbs which is insane compared to a 90lb frib from winboats. Performance does mind boggle me through. The 2 different V shaped hulls make me think. Anyone can tell us which shape is better for performance?
